Speak to a quality dental provider in Georgetown about porcelain veneers
Georgetown, TX patients with imperfections in their smile may be unaware of the many ways in which Dr. Andrew Edmonds can help. Cosmetic dentistry is growing in popularity as patients realize how affordable and attainable it is to get the smile you have dreamed of. A quality restoration that many patients find to be an easy way to enhance the smile is that of the porcelain veneer. These dental restorations are essentially facings made of porcelain that are bonded onto teeth near the front of the smile to cover:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped and cracked teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Usually shaped teeth
- Short teeth
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
Why choose porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are just one way to address cosmetic concerns. These restorations are often chosen for their many benefits. Veneers made of ceramic are not susceptible to staining and can last many years with proper care. This makes them a more desirable option than composite resin bonding, which can stain and only provide coverage for a few years before needing to be replaced. Porcelain veneers are strong and durable, though patients with certain conditions such as bruxism will need to wear mouthguards at night to protect their teeth and restorations from unwanted clenching and grinding. Porcelain veneers are made to match the patient’s existing teeth, ensuring a natural appearance while concealing problematic aesthetic issues.
What is the process of obtaining a porcelain veneer?
Obtaining a porcelain veneer is easy with our team of professionals at 4405 Dental Studio. Dr. Andrew Edmonds will first file down the front of the tooth to make room for the veneer. Then, impressions are taken. These molds are used to make the final restoration from porcelain. The porcelain veneers are then bonded onto the front of the teeth and provide a simple and affordable transformation, hiding breakage, staining, and other imperfections that can occur to the anterior teeth.
